20 Description The first ten of the fifteen Seder signs are arranged in two adjacent columns of five, rectangular, tinted panels on a full page. Each column is to be read from top to bottom beginning on the right, while each panel is accompanied by an identifying inscription. The page is headed by the title, סימן לסדר של פסח, "Sign(s) for the Passover Seder." In each scene the leader of the Seder sits in a room in an armchair on the left at the head of a rectangular covered table, joined by the other Seder participants. A candelabra hangs over the center of the table. The opening panel, for the sign, Kadesh, shows four people round the table with the leader holding a goblet for the recitation of the kiddush. A woman stands facing him on the right. The second panel, for the sign, Rehaz, shows four people seated round the table. A servant stands with his back to the viewer pouring water from a jug over the leader's hands, for the first washing of the hands during the Seder (no blessing is recited for this washing). The third panel, for the sign, Karpas, shows six people seated round the table with the leader holding a leafy branch. The fourth panel, for the sign, Yahaz, shows three men seated by the table set with mazot on a tray. A fourth man stands handing a piece of the broken middle mazah to the leader. The fifth panel, for the sign, Maggid, shows three men and a woman seated round the table. The men reach out towards the round basket-like Seder plate at the center of the table on which three goblets also rest. The sixth panel at the top left, for the sign, Rahaza, shows the Seder participants standing washing their hands in a raised basin in the right corner. The leader sits at the left looking on and a covered goblet rests on the table before him. The seventh panel, for the signs Mozi and Mazah, shows four people seated round the table. The leader raises mazot in both hands while more mazot rest on the table by a large round plate. The eighth panel, for the sign, Maror, shows five people round the table. The leader holds a goblet in his left hand while pointing to an object on the table with his right. While copying from his model the artist mistakenly reversed the illustration for this sign with that of the next one - Korekh. The ninth panel, for the sign, Korekh, shows five people seated round the table, with the leader raising a bunch of leaves in his left hand (representing the maror for the previous sign). The final panel, for the sign, Shulhan Orekh, shows three men seated round a table partaking in the main meal while a fourth carries a tray out of the room.
